watch this: "Still Love Christmas"
The Holidays and the Andymanathon go hand in hand. I cannot have one without the other. For me, appearing on Andy's annual 48 hour radio marathon became what I would imagine midnight mass feels like to others. Sure it was fun.. and sometimes boozy... but still, it was for a great cause and it really felt like you were part of a bigger community. It was spiritual. Sadly, our good friend Andy "Andyman" Davis left this world too soon and now it is up to us to continue his good work, keep his legacy alive and "help the kids".
Watershed fans have always made me proud by turning out in mass to help with this worthy endeavor and this year can be no different. It's time to strap it on and be part of the Andyman community. There are two easy ways you can help remember our friend Andy.
1) Watershed will be performing along with Los Gravediggers, Miranda Sound, The Girls, and Two Cow Garage at the Bluestone Sunday December 16th. Watershed will be on at 9 sharp. Why Sunday? The decision was made to have the concert become the official "after party" of the 48 hour Andymanathon radio marathon ending the same day at 5pm. The concert will start early and end early so no worries there. Tickets are only $10 and ALL proceeds go to Andy's memorial fund and cd101 for the kids.
2)Call CD1025 @ #614 221 1025 during the the Andymanathon (Fri Dec14-Sun Dec16th) and pledge money to hear your favorite Watershed/Colin Gawel music played on CD102.5. Take over the airwaves!! They have operators standing by. so call call call. or come down while we play the big room Saturday night and make the donation then. For every $20 (cash) you give at the station, you get a ticket to the big show Sunday.
